Anyone who regularly shops at Trader Joe’s knows how coveted their seasonal items are, and how important it is to get them before they are gone. Every year, Trader Joe’s continues to “wow” us with our favorite, traditional seasonal items, and some new surprises. What better way to get into the Fall spirit than with some of Trader Joe’s most tasty and delicious Fall snacks and treats? Now that we have officially passed the first day of Fall, there is no better time than now!
We have pulled together some of the items that you absolutely must try from Trader Joe’s, for those who are already aware of the joy that their seasonal items bring, and for those who will be giving them a go for the first time. Check them out here:
Trader Joe’s savory fall favorites…
If you are anything like me, you will be stocking up with several of these boxes to get you through the holiday season. The Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese is covered in sauce made with three cheeses – cheddar, gouda, and parmesan, plus béchamel, butternut squash purée, and seasonal spices. This is, hands down, the most heavenly mac and cheese you will ever experience.
I am, and will forever be, a sauce girl. The Pumpkin Chipotle Roasting Sauce is perfect for any meats that you are cooking during the Fall season. It has a creamy Pumpkin flavor with warming spices such as cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, and clove. You will also taste a little bit of a kick with its smoky Chipotle peppers and sweet molasses.
Colder weather means one thing – it is soup season! This creamy, tomato-based soup is made with pumpkin, tomatoes, butternut squash, and cream, while seasoned with sage and rosemary. It is super easy to make over the stove or in the microwave.
Pasta lovers – this one is for you. If you are into raviolis then you will be obsessed with the Pumpkin Raviolis, that are stuffed with a mixture of pumpkin, honey, ricotta, mozzarella cheese, and several spices. These raviolis can be topped with any sauce of your choosing, but one of my favorites to pair them with is the Autumnal Harvest Creamy Pasta Sauce, offering a full Fall experience for your taste buds!
Trader Joe’s sweet fall favorites…
These are, by far, one of the most dangerously delicious items that Trader Joe’s has this Fall season. While their Joe-Joe’s are always a hit, the Pumpkin Spice ones are truly next level. These cookies are dipped in a sweet pumpkin spice-flavored yogurt and topped with sea salt. When it comes to these cookies, you may want to buy two boxes.
Another one of my all-time favorite desserts at Trader Joe’s are the Hold the Cones – mini-ice cream cones that you can, quite easily, eat the whole box of in one sitting. The Pumpkin Ginger cones are ginger-flavored and topped with pumpkin ice cream that is covered in a delicious sugary coating. These are perfect for a quick, small dessert after dinner, or just to snack on if you are craving one during the day!
Paired perfectly with the Pumpkin bagels, this cream cheese spread is to die for. This Fall product is tried and true and is something that everyone looks forward to the grocery store releasing each year. What better way to start off your day than with a sweet, pumpkin-flavored bagel and cream cheese? (The answer is – there is absolutely no better way to start your day).
If you are on-the-go but still want to be in the Fall spirit, check out these cereal bars, which feature ingredients such as pumpkin, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves. These are great for a fast breakfast in the morning or to have with you throughout the day if you know you will not have time for a meal.
